    Mambo Cosmico is largely a carnival of delights. [May 2018, p.95]

    Their sonic restlessness never falls off track into musical excess, but instead allows keen articulation of the plethora of identities found in non-Anglo culture, and denotes the places they intersect. Besides, you can dance your ass off while absorbing its coded messages. Bravo.

    Mambo Cósmico demonstrates the band's musicality and their thorough understanding of the music's history.

    This post-genre approach allows them to take cumbia, mambo, porro, carnival music and ceremonial song, and mash it together in unpredictable and deeply psychedelic ways. [May 2018, p.35]
